know what we know, the question is what will we do let me empsoys. president obama and we in the united states we believe in the united nations and great respect for the brave inspector who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. and as the security general moon said again and again, the un investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the un investigation. they will only a whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the un can't tell us anything that we haven't shared with you this afternoon and we don't already know and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism of any action of the un security council, the un cannot dwaflinnize the world to act the way it should. let me be clear, we'll talk to the congress and talking to our allies and most importantly talking to the american people and president obama will insure that the united states of america makes our decisions on our own time lines and based on our value asks in our interest. now we know that after a decade of conflict, the am

ten years ago without great britain, without a resolution. obama is doing exactly what he ran for president against when he pledge never to do. it is like animal farm, repainting slogans on the farm and pretending they were always that way. >>anna: we're starting to see arguments on both side. charles krauthammer saying is it something to do with the president's ego saying don't cross the red line and once crossed not doing anything about it. and jack keane saying something should have been done earlier. >> no purpose whatsoever unless it is to assuage the guilty conscience of a president or vindicate the vanity of a president who has become the laughingstock around the world and whose word means nothing because last year he spoke about a red line and allowed all the red lines to be crossed without lifting a finger. maybe he feels compelled as a way to vindicate himself. you don't take a country into war as a way to vindicate your own standing. you do it to achieve strategic objectives on behalf of your country. if they're going to do a three-day strike with no intention of al

obama says he's not going to negotiate on this. he wants a clean bill, raise the debt ceiling, no other issues on the table, no strings attached. just let me borrow more by october so i can pay the bills. that's the statement from president obama no negotiations. that's not going down very well on wall street. they look at this and say here we go again and the dow jones average will open about 120 points down in part because of that no negotiation position from the president. martha: we know from history republicans will come back and say they want to see spending cuts to pass this through. why do you think the president is so intractable on this issue? >> it's possible he thinks if there is a government shutdown over the debt ceiling issue then the president wins politically and the republicans as they have in the past lose politically so he's saying go ahead, shut it down. the market is concerned about the syrian situation and again about another debt crisis 50 days away. martha: there are oil concerns percolating in the market and we'll talk about those a couple minutes away. and a v
